Cracking shot, and humourous too.
My beetle book has hundreds of beetles in it, so many look similar Grin. Sorry I can't help with the ID.

It's definitely NOT a VW, John...WinkBlush
No excuses about the weather being 'not right' for wildlife shots, now you have 'found' your macro lens lurking at the bottom of your bag, John..!
Keep this up, it's a wonderful image of a Beetle.

Wonderful macro work, John. Superb detail and well selected dof and careful compositional use of the background to give the image some balance.

A wonderful macro. Compared to the more expensive Canon 100mm l f2.8, this lens looks like it performs very wellGrin
